Seventeen teams teed up at Romsey Golf Club to raise funds for the 2017 Lancefield/Macedon Ranges Relay For Life. Conditions were good, a light southerly breeze wandered across the park and the temperature was just below 20C. There was plenty of good natured ribbing as the teams spread out across the course with many daring predictions of just how far under par one or another team was going to score. Teams came from within Romsey, many local sporting clubs and surrounding towns. The 12 hole, par 45 “Old Course”, echoed with cheers as birdies dropped or groans as balls ran passed the cup and the things really erupted when Shannon Wright aced the par 3, 10th hole. Light rain began to fall as the teams were completing the final two holes however everyone was inside enjoying a traditional Romsey G. C. lunch when the skies opened and heavy rain fell. The room was more than happy to applaud the day’s sponsors “Romsey Hardware” as well as the kitchen and bar staff and the many volunteers who had worked so hard to prepare the course for the day. All told just over $2,000.00 was raised on the day. On a very relaxed and very enjoyable day the results were;
